  1. As someone who worked there this is way off. No soy wine or bourbon at all. Just buy teriyaki glaze which is what it's marinated in for 12+ hours with a generic bourbon seasoning. Cook and top with more teriyaki glaze.
  2. This is not a spot on recipe. But it is really close and just as good. I usually add an extra 1/4 cup of Jim Beam and about 1/4 teaspoon of cumin to give it a little more kick
  3. As a chef, this recipe far outshines the Golden Corral version, which is always sticky and the chicken is hard and dry, even when it is fresh from the kitchen. If you want authentic, use this recipe and tweek it to your liking. Personally, I used a bit more brown sugar and ginger. It always comes out perfect.
  4. I promise Golden Corral is not using white wine or bourbon in their food. Missing some spices too. Look here....
  5. Best chicken I have every made or eaten!!! Easy and fabulous...only marinated for about 4 hours..don't think longer would have improved they flavor. Reduced the sauce and eliminated the white wone..not necessary.
